Beary Scrap Inspiration Challenge

Well, you've had a week to discover that the Beary Scrap's Challenge is to be inspired by something in your closet. This week, I got my new Echo Park Country Drive collection, and I loved it so much, I knew I had to make it work for this week's challenge. As many of you know, my sweet sister Lori has moved right next door to me - and one of the perks that comes with that, is that we can now share what's in our closets! This is a picture of Lori and our Mom, taken a couple of years ago, at the Teacher's Luncheon, that Lori hosted. The theme was bees - and thus you can see the inspiration for today's project.

Don't you just love all of those bees?!!! I used a new stamp from Layers of Color Art stamps, and first colored it with Copics. I cut and colored and shaped a 2nd image of the bee and flowers, and highlighted them with Sakura Crystal 3-D Lacquer. I used a large Martha Stewart punch, and of course, had to add some Seam Binding ribbon.

Thanks for buzzing by today!
